Family and Kid-Friendly Stuff

Family vacations on the Russian River are the kind that make lifelong memories. Generation after generation of families return to the River, year after year - start your own family tradition by joining them!

For outdoor fun, there are the beaches, canoeing/kayaking/paddleboating, horseback riding, miniature golf, playgrounds, Segways, swimming and a zipline! If you want to kick back a little and let someone else do the planning, consider a tour.

On rainy days, or just 'cause, you can check out our local museums, indulge a little at our candy and toy stores - or go see a movie!
